Microbiology

The Microbiology Laboratory performs quality control analyzes through the microorganism count and search for pathogens in samples of raw material, finished product and water, by Reference normative.

In order to meet the market demand and the bio safety normative, the Microbiological Laboratory works on a strict Quality Control and follow the pharmacopoeia updates.
